Still feeling terrible but I'm big and ugly enough to deal with it I'm fortunate I can usually stop gambling quite easily but always end up going back after a few months that has to stop

Hi Gazza,

Yes it's only a week, but remember for a CG to go 1 day without gambling is a massive achievement. Day 1 is building the foundations for day 2. You've done the groundwork for day 8 so don't get disheartened fella. No matter how bad things seem right now it will get better. I know you're an intelligent bloke so work it out.

All The Best

Al
